Attack against a France 24 journalist in Cairo (October 22, 2012)
France utterly condemns the attack against a France 24 journalist on Friday in Tahrir Square in Cairo.
We call on the Egyptian authorities to do everything possible to speed up the investigation, identify those responsible and bring them to justice.
We reaffirm our solidarity with our compatriot; as soon as they had been informed of the situation, our ambassador in Cairo and his team provided her with the necessary support and assistance in these especially painful circumstances.
Respect for women and the freedom of the press are inseparable from the democratic values upheld by the Egyptian revolution.
